NBA Playoff Predictions 2011: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Denver Nuggets

Western Conference Playoffs

#4 Oklahoma City Thunder vs. #5 Denver Nuggets

Team sites: Welcome to Loud City (Thunder) & Denver Stiffs (Nuggets)

Essential Reading: What Daily Thunder learned from the last two matchups between OKC and Denver ... Roundball Mining Company has plenty of words to break this series down ... Don't miss these good tidbits from Sebastian Pruti on the offenses that each team runs.

Prediction: Oklahoma City in 5. The Thunder are a year removed from nearly taking the champs down, and they know they have the potential to be a true championship contender. They should take advantage of their athleticism, talent, and strength on both ends of the floor to shut down the upstart Nuggets and move on.
